It's BS. You attack the bees where they enter the building. So wherever you see that traffic, in and out, all day long, is where you get the bees. That's assuming no one has applied any of the WRONG substances to the problem. If you use the wrong stuff, you could be in for a weeks long sojourn of bees entering from who-knows-where.
The "larva" are inside the comb - they hatch out as fuul-fledged adult bees. Larva don't move anywhere.
Nowadays, bees are pretty easy for the exterminator. A little spray on the outside of the nest, even on the outside where the bees alight, is enough to kill off the nest in a day or two.
The spray does not kill bees that are actually inside their cells. When the emerge, they contact the insecticide and will die within a few hours.
Ask them what chemical they used. If they didn't use Termidor, they used the wrong thing.
Let me know how it goes!
